Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 62

Prompt-

rec62

The moon is still dark
but
I’m not worried
it’s going through its phases
it will shine again
what worries me is 
the future of the earth
will it become
like the moon
waterless
due to 
negligence of its
politician
businessmen
builders
who have no water in their eyes
and heart
no concern for the earth
becoming a desert
aren’t they afraid of 
water world war
are they so heartless
unconcerned of 
farmers suicide
people sufferings
due to the scarcity of water
the moon is still dark
but a part of it shines
and so shines
the hope
in my heart
till the people
like Rajendra Singh
THE WATERMAN of India
are there
spreading water literacy

teaching people

about water conservation

and many more people joining him

To save the planet

WATERMAN Of India- Rajendra Singh

Dr. Rajendra Singh (born 6 August 1959) is a well-known water conservationist & environmentalist from Alwar district, Rajasthan in India. Also known as “waterman of India”, he won the Stockholm Water Prize. He runs an NGO called ‘Tarun Bharat Sangh’ (TBS), which was founded in 1975. The NGO based in village hori-Bhikampura in Thanagazi tehsil, near Sariska Tiger Reserve, has been instrumental in fighting the slow bureaucracy, mining lobby and has helped villagers take charge of water management in their semi-arid area as it lies close to the Thar Desert, through the use of johad, rainwater storage tanks, check dams and other time-tested as well as path-breaking techniques. Starting from a single village in 1985, over the years TBS helped build over 8,600 johads and other water conservation structures to collect rainwater for the dry seasons, has brought water back to over 1,000 villages and revived five rivers in Rajasthan, Arvari, Ruparel, Sarsa, Bhagani and Jahajwali.

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

      • I too didn’t know about him though I should have, feeling guilty. Please go through the link. Watched today’s KBC and knew about him. Thank you so much for your kind words.

  2. Great! You started on a very poetic note, moved on to environment and narrowed focus on a personality. It is no mean task to cover so much in a single piece.
